For the 3rd semester field work I had gone to Itanagar Diocesan Association (IDEA), Itanagar. I was engaged in community survey aimed at understanding the living condition of the village people. The community survey was carried out in three districts of Arunachal Pradesh i.e. Papumpare, Upper Subansiri and Lower Subansiri. The one month of experience in three districts of West Arunachal Pradesh was a unique learning experience. It was an eye opening experience for me to see people still living in poverty when many of their own people are enjoying luxurious life. During this whole month’s experience, one thing that touched me most was the interaction with a lady who is a farmer and her husband who lost his leg in an accident. As I was interviewing her what this lady said was that many government officials had also come for various surveys but still they have not got anything. She said “we will die and go and even our children will not get anything from the government”. These few words made me reflect and think if the work that am engaged in now was going to contribute for the good of people or let them remain with the same opinion. When I thought that my little contribution is going to benefit some poor people it made me work harder but when I thought that it will go in vain, I would become lazy and feel guilty. Thus, through this I have learned that whenever we do something, be it big or small, there should always be a positive outcome which will benefit some people as well as satisfy us for the contribution we make.
